Biography

Anna Bonitatibus, a native of Basilicata in Italy, made her debut at La Scala Milan in 1999 in Don Giovanni under the baton of Riccardo Muti. Since then her interpretations have included over fifty operatic titles, covering early baroque to bel canto repertoire and collaborating with all the major conductors and directors such as Ivor Bolton, Sir Antonio Pappano, Renè Jacobs, William Christie, Myung Whung Chung, Franz Welser-Möst, Roberto Abbado, Alain Altinoglu, Marc Minkowski and Teodor Currentzis.
 
From her first recording, Vivaldi’s La Griselda made in 1992, Anna Bonitatibus distinguished herself through the operas of the baroque period, Neapolitan opera buffa and French repertoire. Thanks to her performances of familiar works by Mozart, Handel and Rossini, she has performed on all Europe’s leading stages and in concert halls worldwide. Her en travesti roles, or “trousers roles”, deserve a special mention and as the embodiment of Cherubino, she has become one of the most acclaimed performers of Mozart.
 
Among her many award-winning recordings, Anna Bonitatibus received the International Opera Award in 2015 for her disc Semiramide, la Signora regale – a variety of musical gems discovered by herself. In 2016, Bonitatibus took a selection of songs from this album on tour with Prague baroque orchestra Collegium 1704, performing in concert halls in Baden-Baden, Essen and at Wigmore Hall in London, where she returned in 2018 for Italian song recitals.
Her last CD with the Munich Rundfunkorchester, en travesti, which features so-called “trousers roles”, also received great critical acclaim.   

Highlights of the past seasons include her debut at the Opéra National de Bordeaux as Dulcinée in Massenets Don Quichotte under the baton of Marc Minkowski, Cherubino/Le nozze di Figaro at the Gran Teatre del Liceu Barcelona, Cecilio/Lucio Silla at the Théâtre de la Monnaie Brussels, Il Destino/La Calisto at the Bayerische Staatsoper Munich and the Teatro Real de Madrid, Sesto/La Clemenza di Tito in Warsaw, Agrippina and her role debut as Penelope in Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria at The Grange Festival, as well as Handel’s Ottone in Moscow.
In the concert field, she was a guest at London’s Wigmore Hall, in Helsinki, Bologna, Pesaro, Potsdam, and Linz, as well as at the Aids Opera Gala in Bonn, the Al Bustan Festival in Beirut and the Händel-Festspiele in Karlsruhe.

In the season 2018/19, Anna Bonitatibus took on i.a. the title roles of Donizetti’s Enrico di Borgogna in Bergamo, Carmen in Madrid and Riccardo Broschi’s Merope at the Innsbrucker Festwochen, as well as Sesto/La Clemenza di Tito under the baton of Benjamin Bayl at the Opéra Royal de Wallonie Liège.
Furthermore, she sang compositions by Rossini in Seoul and Pesaro, Mozart’s Requiem in Linz, Berlioz‘ Les Nuits d’été under Antonello Manacorda in Potsdam, and a programme consisting of songs from her newest album en travesti at Munich’s Prinzregentheater.

Upcoming engagements include, among others, Giunone in Francesco Cavalli‘s Ercole amante at Opéra Comique Paris, Rosina/Il barbiere di Siviglia in Tours, the title role in concert version of Broschi‘s Merope at the Theater an der Wien and under the baton of Alessandro De Marchi, as well as Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 9 in Malaga.
